Big Dave Sharp

Big Dave Sharp originally lived in Greenwood, Arkansas for many years growing up - this is where he says some of the best memories of his life were. He was raised in a wonderful Christian home and due to family circumstances moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area where he began to head down a wrong path in life due to his dissapointment, not in God, but in man. A talented singer and entertainer, he began to use his talents for the world in as an owner of his own DJ business working in clubs all over D/FW for almost a decade and eventually got into radio in D/FW as a "Shock Jock" of his own entertainment talk radio show. As time went on God began to speak to his heart and he decided to give his life fully to Jesus Christ and shut down everything in D/FW and moved back to his roots in the Fort Smith area to start his life over with his wife of 19 years. After a short while God led him to get back into radio and use his talents for the Kingdom Of God and now he works for Spirit 106.3 in Fort Smith and is excited about what God has in store for the future!
